Feathers. It's part painting and part sculpture. The entire thing was designed built and painted by Robert R Norman. The owl is painted in acrylic on a centerpiece surrounded by a limited pallet of colors. Radiating out from the frame are painted sticks representing the woods where the owl lives. The entire piece is highly influenced by the artist influences as a rustic furniture builder. This piece was created for a downtown Bentonville art show. Hosted by Zeek Taylor. Both Robert and Zeek are two of Eureka Springs Best known artist.
This piece is heavy! You will need a secure anchor point. The main body of the art is painted on mdf. The sticks were collected from dead trees and are scrap pieces of wood from the artist furniture making wood shop.

I prefer to frame them without glass, but if you use glass, just make sure it is not UV resistant.
Sunshine will definitely charge the paint and allow it to glow all night. However, the black light brings out the colors better and brighter. I would keep the black light nearby to use for an extra dose of energy for the artwork.
Search for 'UV black light' on Amazon.com. And remember, not all black lights are UV lights. Make sure to choose a UV black light.
When a black light is used on it for a bit, the painting will glow bright for maybe 20 mintues and then fade, but it won't stop shining. It will continue to glow softly all night in shades of blue and green.
This can happen when it gets humid and the painting is left unframed. When you frame the painting, this will flatten it and keep it in place. However, you can also lightly mist the back of the painting and place a book on top of it. Give it a couple of hours to dry and lift the book. All flat again!
